16 Mar My 4th Triathlon
Race season has officially begun. This past Sunday I competed in my 4th triathlon. This one was a little different, because Colby, my brother, and my dad competed as well. It was our first annual family triathlon and it was everyone’s first tri except mine. I was so proud because everyone did so well. My dad was so good about training and for all three of the men to finish and do so well is just awesome. I am a very proud daughter, sister, and wife!
It was so nice to have the whole family out there. Colby usually helps out so much and cheers me on along the way and since he was also racing I was thankful for my mom, other brother, sister-in-law, and nieces and nephews out there to cheer us all on at the finish line.
I was not happy with my time and missed my goal by 3 minutes. I know 3 minutes is actually a lot in a race, but at the same time I wish I pushed myself harder. This was the first race that I didn’t finish on the podium, but there was also a lot more competition this time. Considering I was on the tail end of being sick for two weeks, I guess I should be grateful that I finished at all!
